a bit unexpected

Dermatologist phoned with the results of my biopsies from last week’s skin check today.

Mole on shoulder = all good, no problems. 

Hmmm, was my immediate thought upon hearing this, what was wrong with the one on my back …

And yes, there was something abnormal with the one on my back. Not a melanoma, but progressing toward that. On a scale of minor, moderate and severe not-melanoma, it scored a moderate. 

Just a little scary.

Dermatologist got it all and there is nothing for it but to be ever-vigilant and to keep up the regular annual skin checks. Oh and to be extremely sensible about sun protection, which I am probably less diligent about than I should be. 

Really, you should go and get a skin check!
